My compressor is bad and i was wanting to bypass the compressor with a smaller belt, what size belt do i need to get

There's probably no way to find a serpentine belt to by-pass the A/C compressor. However, the compressor only spins when the compressor clutch is engaged, and if you unplug the clutch the compressor pulley spins freely on its bearing without turning the compressor. The clutch wiring connector is usually on the compressor near the pulley.

My compressor is bad on my 2000 pontiac sunfire 2.4, i am wanting to bypass the belt with a new (smaller belt) can u please tell me what size i will need

What you are looking for is called an 'air conditioner compressor bypass pulley'. Most chain auto parts stores have them in stock.

All you do is install the bypass pulley and use a shorter belt.

The only downside is the cost of $25-$40. That's about one-third the cost of a remanufactured unit and the labor is compatible.

All the best

Ac compressor going out on 2000 chevy impala. can you bypass w a smaller size serpentine belt?

don't believe there is a way if it's a 3.8. However ,just replacing the bearing on the compressor in not a big job,even if the compressor is bad the pulley will still spin.If the compressor itself is bad just unplug it.

2000 olds intrigue.....bypass AC compressor with new size serpentine belt

Sure , it can be done if you know the exact length of the belt you need. I would think the biggest problem would be getting the belt on so everything turns in the right direction.

mcdevito75 here, There should be a diagram of the belt closre to the radiator, then you"ll need a tool to move the tension pully. Best bet, let your local repair shop change the belt.
